Environmental Chambers for Leica

(Digital Pixel)


Leica Inverted Microscope Chamber Systems

Digital Pixel support both the current Leica DMi8 as well as the DMi6000 range of inverted microscopes in wide field, as well as configurations compatible with the Leica SP5 and SP8 confocal systems.

Leica DMi8 Chamber Variants

Digital Pixel has developed three designs based on customer requirements for the DMi8 microscope.Two of our designs go to the optical table, one is mounted directly onto the microscope.

Of the two designs that are table mounted, one is designed to allow the researcher greater access to the microscope by removing the main front panel of the chamber. This is typically used in Super Resolution configurations. These systems have been designed to allow full access to the microscope controls without having to move any silicon flaps or open any doors, through the use of an internal panel.

The microscope mounted system is normally used either for wide field or spinning disk systems. Here, the emphasis is on keeping clear space around the base of the microscope for peripherals such as cameras, beam splitters etc. The Digital Pixel Solution is mounted directly on the microscope, and does not require support poles. Combined with our internal heater technology this approach is the easiest to install system on the market.


Multiple System Configurations

The three system configurations are available in either matt black (MB), clear (CL) or MB/CL, which is matt black with a clear front and blackout curtain.

Chamber and Heater Thermal Specifications

Temperature Range Ambient +1 °C to 42 °C

Temperature Stability ± 0.3 °C

Temperature Homogeneity ± 0.3 °C across the XY axis of a motorised stage system.

All measurements depend on the precise microscope and chamber configuration, but are typical.
